This year we also had to "repair" the damages our internet provider had done by digging a deep hole in our garden by mistake !! This part of the garden had to be completely redone.
I don't have a green thumb and reduce garden work to a minimum and Mr. G. never had.
This part of the garden had to be covered with a thick plastic which doesn't allow weeds to grow and then covered with barks.
Of course Mr. G. couldn't do that anymore and I hired a gardener
it was quite some work !
Now it looks nice and clean
He also cut what had to be cut in the shrubs
Now it's nice to look at the blooming lilac
I put fake flowers in my pots so I don't have to water it and nobody can see that they are fake when people walk by our house.
I honestly don't care, the most important thing is that it looks nice and clean.
the front yard
and on the side a rockery
We have been told to let some weeds in the lawn like daisies for the bees because we all have to feed them otherwise they die out. Therefore I have a good excuse not to pull out weeds all the time !
